Zogby Report Card: Good moves in Iraq and Ferguson, Mo., buoy midterms
BY PAUL BEDARD | AUGUST 16, 2014 | 6:00 AM

Pollster John Zogby reports in our weekly White House report card that President Obama scored good points with his Iraq policy and efforts to quell violence in Ferguson, Mo., giving him something to brag on in November.

"The president is on vacation, but global crises are not. Mr. Obama revealed a steady hand in the Iraq crisis by deliberating then acting judiciously in northern Iraq to assist persecuted religious minorities and halt the progress of the Islamic State.

“At the same time, he won a victory when Iraq's corrupt and disruptive prime minister finally resigned, clearing the way for a fresh start with a unity government. The Obama administration has maintained that Iraq can only healed with inclusive leadership and politics. That leadership is now in place.

“At home, the president spoke sensitively about racial tensions in St. Louis County, Mo. town of Ferguson, but unleashed his attorney general to assess the use of heavy artillery against demonstrators. These are all talking points for November."

Seriously?  What alternate universe is this from?
I won't vote for Clinton, but I cannot vote for Trump.  How could I explain to my daughter why I supported a man who sees her as nothing more than a piece of meat, a piece of a$$ for him to grope for his own private pleasure.

"Trump supporter" - the very definition of an SFI

it is likely that Zogby is seeing anup tick in Obama's popularity and doesn't have a better reason for it.

You voted to burn down the GOP. Mission Accomplished. Stop pretending you were voting to stop Hillary.

Obama can contribute by getting his black resentment base and his white guilt base to the polls in November.

He's proved himself adept at political-personal life multitasking; eg. golfing, bicycling, partying, whisking down to DC without a tie, for a brief press event, and jetting back to the Vineyard.

By the way, he looks Islamic without a tie.
